"Investigators were called to the scene and learned that several individuals were involved in a shootout within the parking lot. All had fled the scene before the arrival of officers and no injuries were reported to authorities," Lt. Mike Hanel said in the press release.

As the investigation spanned into the weekend, Dickinson Police investigators were able to identify the individuals involved in the shootout. After a search warrant was granted by the Southwest Judicial District, the Southwest Tactical Team was deployed to a residence in the 200 block of G Street at approximately 1:15 p.m. Sunday.
